4thand7th-Asia-Conference---Postcard.V13

OVERVIEW

The Asia-Pacific International Food Safety Conference is a regional conference series of the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP). It is held every two years, first in Korea (2009), followed by Australia (2011) and most recently in Taiwan (2013). The conference aims to serve as a platform to discuss the latest trends and issues in food safety across the Asia Pacific region, bringing together food safety professionals from all sectors including government, industry and academia.

The Asian Conference on Food and Nutrition Safety organized by the Southeast Asia Region branch of the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) is a well-recognized regional conference series first inaugurated in 1991 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It was the first major conference to discuss food safety in the Asian region. The conference is held once every 4 years in an Asia country, including Thailand (1994), China (2000), Indonesia (2004), Philippines (2008) and Singapore (2012). The conferences and concurrent training workshops bring together experts and stakeholders from industry, academia and government to address relevant scientific and technical issues impacting the safety of the food supply chain.

ILSI and IAFP have a long collaborative history and on the occasion of the inauguration of the newly-formed Southeast Asia Association of Food Protection (SEA AFP), the 2 organizations will jointly present their signature conference series in Penang, Malaysia in 2016.
